The Last Straggler Travels; Corfu

IMG_2463

 

I’ve been blessed to have been to some beautiful places this year in the UK and abroad and Corfu was definitely one of the best I’ve visited so far. The stunning landscape lived up to what I’d heard about the amazing scenery of the Greek Islands. My mum , who is usually busy with her charity work in St Lucia; http://thevieuxfortchildrenssociety.weebly.com, and I stayed in a small resort in a part called Kanoni which is in the same area that the Queens hubby, Prince Philip was born (amused by the fact the our Royals are Greek and German). Our hotel, Corfu Holiday Palace, was situated opposite the famous Mouse Island where Austrian Empress Sisi used to sit and chill. I can see why she chose the cute island which is one of the most peaceful places on earth with its monastery and now an additional pet dog and peacock to add a bit of excitement. One of the nicest parts of the trip which unfortunately can not be captured in pictures was the warmth of the lovely native people who made us feel so welcome and sad to leave. Everything else can be seen here;
